Beschreibung

This book explores the insulin-like growth factor system and its vital role in cancer development and progression. Covers biology, epidemiology and the therapeutic potential of inhibiting receptors using newly discovered antibodies and kinase inhibitors.

The book will detail the history, successes, and failures of targeted therapies for cancer, with a particular focus on IGF systems and cancer.

Comprehensive look at the history of targeted therapies in cancer

Edited by a recognized expert in IGF Systems and cancer

Discusses the successes and failures of targeted therapies and cancer



Klappentext

The insulin-like growth factor system has been shown to play a critical role in cancer development and progression. Insulin-like Growth Factors and Cancer: From Basic Biology to Therapeutics, specifically brings these aspects to the reader. The volume covers the epidemiological aspects of the relationships between circulating insulin and IGF-1 levels and the risk for cancer and cancer-related mortality and in particularly in disease states such as obesity and Type 2 diabetes. It then addresses the basic biology of the system and how the ligands, receptors and IGF-binding proteins affect cancer cell biology and cancer progression. Finally, it discusses the therapeutic potential of inhibiting the receptors using various newly discovered monoclonal antibodies and tyrosine kinase inhibitors that are in preclinical and clinical trials.
